Voting problems, money race before Election Day – CNN contributors Ana Navarro & Roland Martin weigh in

We’re one day out from Election Day and CNN is covering this race from all angles. Live from Washington D.C. this morning, CNN contributors Ana Navarro and Roland Martin break down the latest swing state polls in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Ana Navarro says the 2012 race feels far different in Florida from the race four years ago and is too close to call. “There’s a lot more money,” Navarro says. “You know, four years ago McCain ran out of money. This year, one of the big differences we’re seeing I think in all of the swing states, is that Romney and Obama are fairly evenly matched, on the money race.”

Roland Martin touches on the problems concerning early voting in Florida and Ohio, where he feels there has been “voter suppression”. “Frankly Governor Rick Scott should be ashamed for them cutting those early voting days and also him barring voting on Sunday. That clearly was targeting African American churches and others who turned out in massive numbers on Sundays, “Martin says. “I can hear Republicans say anything they want to, but when you are purposely trying to cut hours and trying to restrict folks, you are trying to impact democracy.”
